Andrew Barrow - Wine Doors Of Florence
The pop-up exhibition communicates a different perspective of Florence, a view away from the mainstream that the artist gained while wandering, seeking the undiscovered. Wine Doors Of Florence reflects everyday life, placing the gaze firmly on the 167 ancient wine doors scattered around Florence. The wine doors, or buchette del vino, are a remnant of the past. A time when during the Medici period, in 1559, a law authorised producers to sell wine from family estates directly to the general public via the cantina or basement of their palazzi. So it was that these, now intriguing, doors onto another world were created in order for the citizens of Florence to purchase the finest local wine, directly from the producer. Now these small wine doors, often forgotten, frequently ignored and sometimes repurposed are venerated by the photographer, Andrew Barrow.
